What’s the current state and future of the green economy in Philadelphia? In Pennsylvania? In the United States?

The Free Library’s Business Resource and Innovation Center (BRIC) will help you figure out what’s new with the city’s sustainability-minded businesses and agencies this Friday, March 10, with a Green Economy Fair and panel discussion with local experts.

According to administrative librarian Rebekah Ray, attendees will be those who want to learn more about the green economy “as citizens, consumers and perhaps as future entrepreneurs. It is also an opportunity for people working in the Green Economy to network and inspire each other.”
